This week, an interview with CD Projekt Red President, Adam Kiciński, has been doing the rounds. We've already learned that the studio has no plans to sell or be acquired by another publisher. Beyond that though, Kiciński reaffirms the studio's commitment to ensuring Cyberpunk 2077 turns into the polished game that was originally promised.
The quotes come from an interview with Rzeczpospolita (via VGC). On the subject of Cyberpunk 2077, Kiciński noted that Cyberpunk 2077 is “the biggest, most ambitious and definitely the most complicated project” in the company's history. One of the main goals during development was to push things even further, beyond what the studio achieved with The Witcher 3.
“We’re proud of many aspects of the game, but as we know, not everything went our way”, Kiciński said. “We believe that in the long run Cyberpunk 2077 will be perceived as a very good game, and like our other titles, it will sell for years, especially as the hardware gets more powerful over time and we improve the game.”
At this point, CD Projekt Red has pushed all patches, free DLC and the next-gen console versions of the game to 2022, spending the final months of 2021 working quietly on the game. There is also a team already working on the first expansion for the game, as well as a team working on an experimental multiplayer mode, following the cancellation of the original multiplayer spin-off game.
KitGuru Says: It has been a long road for Cyberpunk 2077 and many are still waiting to play the game, or revisit it after initially trying it at launch. Hopefully 2022 will be a brighter year, with more updates, new content and the first expansion.
